Any recommendations for attractive, comfy and water tight wellies; preferably at a reasonable price (ie not £60!)

You get what you pay for with wellies.

DO NOT BUY HUNTERS.

THEY LEAK.

Joules are meant to be good.

I love aigle boots, they cost a lot more than £60 however but I wear them everyday, walk miles and happily wear them 8 hours+

It's true you get what you pay for with Welles.

My Hunters don't leak, just starting my fourth winter with them.

My Hunters leaked after a couple of years wear when they split everywhere. Wellies are pot luck really. I had a cheap pair of Aigles before them that lasted about four years. They're only rubber, they will perish eventually.

I've never had a problem with Hunters and they fit really well. Cheap wellies are a false economy , as are the mid priced ones that state they are for fashion wear only ! What's that all about!

Mums on school runs I expect. Never been near a puddle and nor has their chelsea tractor. Or fashion victims.

My Hunter look a likes from the garden centre are still going on after 4 years of frequent use (not every day, but several times a week).

These are they. Can't get my legs in Hunters.

I have plain navy blue Town & Country wellies, they are a classic style and look great with jeans. Much cheaper than hunters and much, much better quality than the 'fashion' wellies that have strawberries or whatever all over them.
I can wear them all day and they are really comfortable. These are them here but I think they were about £35 at my local garden centre.
